Pollster: Vitter should get off Obama, get 80 percent off Dardenne, Angelle's votes
Written by 

Scott Angelle According to pollster John Couvillon of JMC Analytics, David Vitter’s campaign has some real issues it needs to confront, if the US Senator is to beat democrat Jon Bel Edwards to be the next Louisiana governor.  The election is November 21.

Here is a rough overview of this part of the interview:

In part 3 of a recent interview with Jim Brown and Bayoubuzz’s Stephen Sabludowsky, Couvillon said Vitter must repair his republican base.  He needs to get 80 percent of the republican vote.

He likewise said that he should not focus upon Obama but on the John Bel Edwards vote.  Couvillon also discussed the new Vitter ad “Zero” which focuses upon his attacks upon government perks.  Jim Brown indicated that this anti-perk assault is rubbing some government officials the wrong way as it is being viewed as an attack upon them.  Couvillon noted that Vitter must get from 23 to 50 percent and must also receive 80 percent of the Jay Dardenne and Scott Angelle vote.

The pollster contrasted the Vitter candidacy to that of now-Senator Bill Cassidy, who was continuously attacked by Rob Maness in the race for US Senate, however, was able to get the Maness supporters into his fold only days after the primary election.

Based upon three recent polls, Republican US Senator David Vitter trails Democrat Louisiana Rep. Jon Bel Edwards in double digits. 

How can this be, since he has been the logical leader ever since he entered the gubernatorial race, given his name recognition, influence, incredible lead over his competitors in contributions (3 to 1 over his combined competitors in the primary race)?

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
